Main topic of the Show: New Lessons Learned From Fencing

BG of fencing over the past year or so


  • It is a better two person project, (Turkey netting story)
  • Logging = “Stretching fence” (BC Story) – related, proper stretching tools are helpful
  • Electric fence is great, until it isn’t (The water story)
  • Ongoing maintenance never ends unless you find an animal to do it for you (Pig story)
  • Fencing will be tested most if you do not manage your rotation well enough (Animals, hills, etc)

All in all, it has been pretty eventful here with the fencing, the animals and the transition to increased food production off my small, 3 acre plot of hilly land with just the right amount of southern exposure.

Make it a great week!
